Village Green: The Penyfai Village Green next to Prothero Avenue ,the grass has always been cut by Bridgend County Borough Council, this year the grass has been left to grow out of control for weeks making this unpleasant for the residents of Prothero Avenue and Penyfai to see, the Penyfai Village Green looks more like The Jungle, I was the Bridgend County Borough Councillor for Penyfai for thirteen years the grass was then cut regular ,when the plans were put to Colonel William Herbert Clydwyn llewellyn for houses a half moon piece of land was provided for a Village Green Prothero Avenue ,this was written down before the Council Houses were built in Prothero avenue,
There was no Valleys to Coast in those days, the property section of Bridgend County Borough Council hold all documents, a report will be given by me in the next meeting of the Newcastle Higher Community Council, for the Community Council to take this further and look into the matter why the grass has not been cut on the Village Green Prothero Avenue Penyfai , The Newcastle Higher Community Council have spent money on planting daffodil bulbs and tulips that flower in the spring
